Presented in English
Windmill Hill City Farm, Bristol, as part of the Bristol Shakespeare Festival

The Barded Ladies
The Barded Ladies revived one of Shakespeare's least-performed plays with a twist for the Bristol Shakespeare Festival - reimagining Queen Margaret as King Margaret and her adversaries Richard of York and Richard of Gloucester as bloodthirsty women. The production drew on contemporary political battles between men and women to explore the roles gender plays in politics and war.
The Barded Ladies are an all-female theatre company founded in 2014 by Alice Tripp, Kat Hipkiss, Giverny O’Brine and Sophie Cox. Their 2016 production saw male actors joint the company for the first time.
